Manager ISLAM) ON SILVER. THE VIEWS OF AN EX-REHRESEN TATIVE ■ lie Hit tile W ell On for it n ISqiialll) of Silver at lledeiuplloii « oln Some Fuels of History its lo lis llenioiic tlzallon. The Hon. Richard I'. Bland, the Missouri ex-representative, opened his Colorado lecture tour in Denver, on the 11 tli inst. An audience that filled the spacious Broadway Theater greeted the silver champion, who was happily introduced hy Senator Teller, with long-coutinued applause and gave the closest attention throughout his address, the delivery of which occupied nearly two hours. It was a notable fact that fully half those in attendance were women. After ac knowledging his magnificent recep tion Mr. Bland said : " I have chosen for my subject " The fight of 20 years in Congress for the tree coinage of silver, and the fight yet to come. This is the first time I have ever visited a silver mining State since this 20-year battle began. I have no interest whatever in the States pro ducing the precious metals, and no sympathy for them beyond the inter est and sympathy I have in our com mon country. The losses your silver producers have sustained on account of the demonetization of silver are not to be compared witli the losses of the farmers of Missouri in the fall of prices of farms and the products of the soil, consequent, us we believe, to the de monetization of silver." Mr. Bland prefaced his review of the 20 years' battle for silver with an ac count of the manner in which its de monetization was accomplished and gold established as the unit of value by the act of 1873. He then said: " While it is evident, from the man ner in which this revolution in our monetary system was accomplished, that it was done iu an indirect and stealthy manner, yet it was the most important and far-reaching legislation on money ever enacted by our govern ment." The lecturer then reviewed fully all the attempts made in Congress to re monetize silver, after the effects of the act of 1873 became known. He said the free-coinage bill of '77, which was vetoed by President Hayes, was voted for by Carlisle of Kentucky, now Secretary of the Treasury; Foster of Ohio, who was Secretary of the Treas ury uudcr Mr. Harrison's administra tion ; McKinley, now Governor of Ohio; Mills of Texas, and Morrison of Illinois, now Interstate Commerce Commissioner. Mr. Bland added : "The fact that most of these gentle men, if not all of them, have changed their views upon this question, should be attributed to the uncertainty of human opinion and the action of pub lic men, for surely the necessity of silver restoration ie as meritorious and urgent now as it was then." Regarding the repeal of the Sher man silver-purchase law, Mr. Bland said: " Impartial history would show that this result was secured by methods most reprehensible and deplorable. The moneyed power of this country and Europe had sought to bring our people and their representatives into complete subjection. » » * The vast debts throughout the country were pressed for collection, and when debtors went to the banks to se- ' cure loans to meet their obligations they were coolly told that it was not safe to loan money until the repeal of J the purchase clause of the Sherman act. The friends of gold monometal ism insisted that the repeal of the purchase clause of the Sherman act | would restore confidence throughout i the country, invite an inflow of gold to our shores and would bring univer sal prosperity. Just the reverse has i occurred. We have sold bonds to the amount of $112,000,000 since the re- i peal in order to check the flow of gold ; from our shores, and to maintain the single gold standard. The gold mono melalists have given the people an ob ject-lesson indeed—one that they will not forget; an object-lesson that has been the best educator in favor of bi metalism that could have taken place. "In all the great battles in Congress on the silver question, the Southern people, while enthusiastic for silver, have had that sympathy and en thusiasm clouded with the dread of force bills or federal interference with their local self-government. Fortu nately, however, in the great battle over the force bill in the benate, the Senators of the West, and especially of gold and silver mining States, in their opposition to this measure, which resulted iu its overthrow and I defeat, have given assurance to the 1 people of the South that their politi-1 i or." reliance, both for the safety of , their home government and their j prosperity on economic questions, I point to the West. " The day has come when war is- ! ' sues cannot longer dominate our poli ' tics. The battle of the standards is the great battle to be fought in this ' country and the world over. This ' vast country of our 44 independent States and other vaol territory, with over $70,000,000,000 of wealth, and with a population of 70,000,000 of > people, increasing at the rate of more than 1,000,000 annually, is strong enough to maintain its own monetary ; system, to open the mints to tlie free , coinage of gold and silver, and thus again restore, not only to ourselves, hut to the world, the old order of i things, hv which gold and silver circu lated side by side, aiding and support ing each other in giving a larger em- I plovnient and ctlecting tlie exchanges | of commerce. "In conclusion, attention should be called to the fact that heretofore no President, since 1873, has been a ; friend of silver. The battle is to be j fought, and the all-important point to gain, is to secure a President who will sign a free coinage bill if sent to him, and will not use the power of patronage of his office to prevent sueh a bill coming to pass, but on the cou i trary, will recommend such legislation. I If we can once secure such a Presi dent, the battle is won. To this point all our euergies in the future must he directed. It is not my purpose, and would he out of place in a non-parti san lecture or speech of this character, to indicate how that may bo brought about, further than to express the hope that every true friend of free coinage of silver will make a firm resolve, and stand to it, that he will not support in any manner a presidential candi date, no matter how nominated or on what party platform he stands, unless that platform and candidate give as surance of silver restoration." Jefferson's Polities. As there is a great deal of talk about " Jeffersonian Democracy" at this time it will not be uninteresting to read a few of the political maxims and views of that illustrious patriot and statesman boiled down and presented in a condensed form. Here they are. How do you like them? 1. The legal equality of all human beings. 2. The people tho only source of power. 3. No hereditary officers, nor order, or title. 4. No taxation beyond actual pub lic needs. 5. No national banks or bonds. 6. No costly splendor of adminis tration. 7. No interference with freedom of thought or discussion. 8. The civil authority superior to the military. 9. No favored classes; no monopo lies. 10. Free and fair elections; uni versal suil'rage. 11. No public money spent with out warrant of law. 12. No mysteries in govornment hidden from the public eye. 13. Representatives bound by the instructions of their constituents. 14. The constitution of the United States a special grant of powers limited and definite. 15. Freedom, sovereignty and in dependence of the respective States. IG. Absolute severance of church and state. 17. The Union a compact —not a consolidation nor a centralization. 18. Moderate salaries, economy, and strict accountability. 19. Gold and silver currency—sup plemented by the treasury notes bot tomed on taxes. 20. No State banks of issue. 21. No expensive navy or diplo matic establishment. 22. A progressive or graduated tax laid upon wealth, the tax to grow in creasingly heavy as the fortune was larger. 23. No internal revenue system. A complete separation of public money from bank funds. Roaring Wei In. Mr. H. Kelley, of Juuiper Flats> gives the Dalles Chronicle an account of his two wells which is interesting to the student of nature. It says: The wells are each six inches in diam eter, one G2 feet deep and the other 110. The peculiarity of the wells is that they are what is known as breath ing wells, haviDg a current of air llow ing out of them for a time, and then being drawn back. The air is of the uniform temperature of 52 degrees. Mr. Kelley says that they record the passiug storms hundreds of miles away by the velocity of the wind com ing from them, which at times causes a regular roar. The big storm at Se attle last winter was noted by them with a louder roaring than ever be fore. Mr. Kelley says the wells are quiet sometimes for an hour or two, but generally are in operation. He is of the opinion that the air in them is affected by the tides, but his figures showing that the air sometimes comes in the same direction for several days, will not bear out the statement. FIEKE IS a new way for a girl to get rid of a late beau who is impervious to all hints: She gives him a paper and pencil, with one of her sweetest smiles, and says: " Now make a row of eleven ciphers; now make a perpen dicular mark downward on the right of tl»e first cipher, upward on the right of the fourth, downward on the right of the fifth, upward on the seventh and eighth, downward on the tenth. The marks should he half an inch long." Ask him to read what he has written. The effect is electrical. J. E. BALLAINE, a well-known news paper man and manager of the news paper end of John L. Wilson's fight for the Senatorship, has been made Mr. Wilson's private secretary. "Hew lo the Line. Let tlie Chips Fall "Where they May." OLYJIPIA, WASHINGTON: ERIIIAY EVENING, MAY 17, 1895. THE UNIVERSALISTS MEET. i 'fliry Advoralr Temperance and Teaee. The State conference of the Univer j salist church of Washington, meet at ! Spokane on the 11th inst. I)r. C. P. ! Culver, of Tacoma, was temporary | chairman. Theofli -era elected for the next year i consist of Harris A. Corell, president, Taeoma; Mrs. lluttie M. Russell, vice president, Seattle; \V. V. Jobesof Spo kane, treasurer, and Orla Bacon of Spokane, secretary. The executive committee consists of Dr. C. P. Culver of Taeoma, Mrs. Walter Burleigh of Seattle and Mrs. Willis of Spokane. The committee on finance, consist ing of the Uev. H. Shinn, George Bacon and Mrs. K. A. Jobes, recom mended the starting of a fund by the State conference to be a church exten sion fund subject to the control of the executive committe. A resolution was adopted defining the position of the Universalis! church in reference to sister churches; de claring it not to he the object of the church to tear down other churches, hut to co-operate with them in build ing up the cause of Christ. A ringing temperance resolution was adopted which declares in the strongest terms for total abstinence as the only attitude for the members of the church as individuals, and declar ing for prohibition of the liquor traffic as the attitude of the church and its members politically. A third resolution deprecated the use of capital punishment and de clared it to be against the teachings of Christ in that it was actuated by a spirit of revenge and tlie old rule of an " eye for an eye;" further that it cheapened human life, was demoraliz ing, and resulted in no good, but only evil, was likewise adopted. The Chicago Tribune corrects the impression that there is less money in circulation now than in 187; J. Last December the total circulation was |l,- 720,000,000 against 751,882,000 in 1873. The per capita circulation was 115.04 iu 1873 and 123.82 in December last. The complaints about the de crease in the amount of money in the country refer to money of ultimate redemption, the money in which all kinds of currency may lie redeemed. It is not difficulty to put currency into circulation. Every man's check may he used as currency to the ex tent of his credit. It may pass from hand to hand in liquidation of obli gations to theamount of its face. But money of ultimate redemption is quite another thing. The whole volume of currency, including greenbacks, hank notes and credits based upon hank de posits, rest upon the gold in the coun try. It is this real money that has de creased, not the paper that does the every-day work of mouey. The com plaint that the money of ultimate re demption has been decreased has been made by no less a person than Presi dent Cleveland. It has been pointed out repeatedly that the gold in the country was an insufficient basis for the currency issued upon it. " The scrap book, as I had always understood it," said a citizen, " meant a collection of various things, poetry, recipes, accounts of strange events, whatever was novel or interesting in view of the collection of clippings pre served by the writer of them; but I have seen lately a scrap book of some what different character which was quite novel to me, and certainly great interest to those whom it concerned. This was a family scrap book contain ing whatever liad appeared iu print about the members of the family, aud extending back to a time before tbe war. Sometimes it is a simple death notice from among the advertisements but telling its story perfectly to those who know; or it may bean obituary notice, rerbaps it is a paragraph telling of an accident to some member of the family or the illness of one; personal clippings from various parts of the country as the family grew up and moved away; a sort of family record that to those concerned in creased in interest as tbe years went by." A Brave Little Woman. Men snort and rave about the la dies' big hats in theaters, and there is caute for it, but the ladies also have a grievance, which the men are bound to heed. They object to this going out business between acts. Recently at the Grand Opera House at Mun cile, Ind., Mrs. l)r. Anna Griffin sat three seats from an aisle. When the curtain dropped after the first act two men occupying the next seat arose to go out. The lady refused to permit them to pass. The men remained standing, finally calling the house po lice, but Manager Wisor stated that the ladv had paid for the seat, and could do as she chose about getting up. When the men sat down the house fairly shook with 'applause. The congratulations of the people and press of the city for Mrs. Griffin's bravery has resulted in much good. SHERIFF Hogan, of Snohomish county, has under arrest two Indians, captured at Irondale, near l'ort Townsend. His prisoners are sus pected of killing another Indian near Snohomish.

DECLARATIONS OF THE SUPREME COUNCIL 11 I* Mylcd tlie Isi tern lit ion u 1 American Protective A*»orlutioii —A Plethora of Words lied in Setting; forth ItM Olijcctw. The following is the complete dec laration of the principles of the new International American Protective As sociation, as adopted by the Supreme Council, at Milwaukee last week : Declaration of princir'"-! anil purposes of the International Ameri can Protective Association: Recognizing that the political and moral advancement of nations depends as much on the general intelligence and development of mankind and gov ernments universally as on the moral, political and physical perfection of the units composing nationalities, and also, recognizing that human perfec tion can only he attained tluough more complete international, social and political intercourse than that which at present obtains, and further realizing that the progress and devel opment of constitutional governments are willfully and selfishly obstructed by certain organizations claiming uni versal recognition, and which, through the completeness of their organiza tions, exercise a more or less universal jurisdiction, to the detriment and in jury as well of constitutional sover eigns and governments as of the sub jects and peoples thereof, and believ ing that the furtherance of human freedom and pr ogress is most speedily and best accomplished by the mainte nance of constituted authority against abuses of an infringement upon the rights, privileges and liberties of indi viduals by constitutional enactments and lawful protests, this, the first congress of the International Ameri can Protective Association, held this 11th day of May, 18'J<">, hereby formu lates the following declaration of prin ciples, aims and purposes of incorpo ration : I—The voice of the people intelli gently and justly expresses the su preme law. 2—The perfection of all law is the recognition of the right of local self government. 3—The right of freedom of con science, free speech, free press, and the privilege of unrestricted private judg ment is beyond all question. 4—lu defining and enforcing the laws and in the definition of its juris diction and powers, the .State is su- preme. s—All institutions of an ecclesiasti cal character claiming temporal do minion or tho right to define the ex tent of their own jurisdiction, arc inimical to all forms of constitutional government, aud are a menace to the perpetuity thereof. 6—The intellectual and moral ad vancement of the world is best expe dited by a sound and fraternal union between all peoples and races whose civilization is the highest and whose liberty of conscience is the most per fect; and the welfare of mankind is best enhanced and preserved by the continuance of a lasting peace bc tweeu all races and people opposed to the efforts of selfish and soulless ecclesiastical and 6nancial corpora tions to disturb the harmony of uni versal brotherhood by the rude alarms of barbarous, dehumanizing and en slaving wars. Aims and purposes: I—To establish throughout the civilized world the principles of the organization by all proper and lawful means. 2—To uphold the right of self government harmoniously with the best interests of the whole. 3—To secure and maintain the su premacy of the State as expressed by the voice of the people. 4—To assist with our moral sup port all people in their efforts to se cure and perpetuate the enactment of legislation based upon the broad prin ciples of constitutional liberty. s—To resist by all lawful means all attempts made by the enemies of peace and international harmony, of freedom of speech and conscience, to precipitate war or engender hostile feeling between all nations wherein branches of the organization may be established. A feature of the session of the su preme council was the congratulatory dispatches received and sent to kindred organizations off tho proposed organi zations of all into an international body. Dispatches were received from the Orangemen of Michigan and the Protective Association of Canada. The supreme council sent a long dis patch to Dr. Thomas Owens, of l'ark erill, Canada, congratulating him aud his followers " upon the struggle they are waging on the cause of popular education, and the work being carried on by them under leadership of the noble patriot, the Hon. Mr. Green way," and pledging their cordial aud lasting support. SHOEMAKERS recommend to some persons stockings with white feet. Dyes when subjected to the moisture of pers piration, are extracted from the stock ings and tend to poison sensitive feet. Stockings are made with uudyed feet especially for the convenience of those 1 that suffer from such poisoning. A frank Confession. There can be no donbt but that if this country is to be run on the pluto cratic goldbug system, the line of de marcation between those who produce and those who spend will be sharply drawn. For years the attempt has been made to establish an aristocracy of wealth in this country. With this end in view vast tru-ts and combines have been organized, in order that monopoly may keep the producer down while wealth aggregates in the hands of the few. To the New York Sun we are indebted for a frank avowal of the way this would-be ruling class views the question. That paper says: "The talk so freely indulged in of the misery of our working people is hysterical exaggeration. A number of philanthropic women memorialized the State Legislature to do something for the relief of ir>o,ooo working wo men in this city who, they said, were earning only 00 cents a day. They evidently; did not know that in China and in India, where plain food is as dear as it is in this country, 10 cents a day is the regular wages and proves sullicient for the simple wants of the bulk of the population." Yes, banish the poor man's money and hoard the gold, keep down the price of labor and what labor produces and you have the whole system. " Ten cents a day is sufficient for the simple wants of the bulk of the people." Why, the masses would be better off without any standard of value. Let every man barter his products for the products of his neighbor. This would at least secure a fair deal and wealth could not accumulate in to the posses sion of the few. The trouble is that too many ave nues to acquire wealth, great wealth and acquire it rapidly, have been opened. Legislation has been in that direction. Trusts are formed with that object and combinations are made to that end. The rights of the masses aud the interests of humanity have been ignored ; what is termed " pros perity" applies ouly to the few while for the many, " ten cents a day is suf ficient for their simple wants." " 111 Tares the laud, to h astenlng ilia a prey Where wealth aceumulatea aud men decay. The country has been warned against this condition by its best and wisest men. Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln were all apnrehensive of the great power of wealth and pre dicted disaster should the day ever come when there should be a concen tration of the wealth in tho hands of a few. But " all the people are not to he deceived all the time" and they are not only their danger but are be ginning to realize their strength. An Important Decision. After years of litigation the famous Mission land case at Vancouver has finally been passed upon by the United States Supreme Court. The decision is in favor of the United States Gov ernment and against the Catholic Mission. The following dispatch dated on the 6th explains it: In the case of the Catholic llishop of Nesqually, Wash., vs. John T. Gib bon and R. T. Yeatman and the Unit ed States, the decision of the United States Court for the district of Wash ington was affirmed to-day by the Supreme Court. The act of Congress establishing the Territorial govern ment of Oregon confirmed title to laud not exceeding 160 acres, occu pied as missionary stations among the Indian tribes to which missionary stations belonged, lu February, 1887, the Catholic corporation began suit for 640 acres adjoining the town of Vancouver, 4110 acres of which were occupied by the government as a military reservation. The United States Circuit Court entered a decree in favor of the defendants and dis missed the bill. The mission was established in 1838, when the land was in possession of the Hudson Bay Company, and in 1850 Col. Loring, of the army, cre ated by proclamation a military reser vation four miles square, which was afterward, by act of Congress, reduced to 640 acres. The church asserted its claim, but the Secretary of the In terior, in 1872, decided it was entitled to a small tract—less thau half an acre—upon which the building stood. Justice Brewer, for the court, said that the decision of the Secretary wag conclusive. Referring to the merits of the controversy, he said the act creating the Territory only conveyed the land actually occupied by the mis sionary societies in their own right. The real occupant of the land, he said, was the Hudson Bay Company, and the mission station was only there on sufferance. —- Staleamau and Scholar. There is at least one member of the cabinet who has the courage of his convictious and is not to be swerved from his duty to the people, no matter what his chief and the rest of his oili cial family may do. Hon. William L. Wilson, of West Virginia, now Post master General, in a recent interview declared himself in the following vigo rous and not-to-be-misunderstood lan- guage. Mr. Wilson said " I have never wanted to go to a national convention, but I mean to make the effort this time, in order that I may cast a vote for free silver. Six months ago I was a hesitating ouble standard man; now I am un reservedly for the emancipation of tlie white uietal at lfi to Rand without any foreign dickering. West Vir ginia is solid for it. The feeling i 9 not confined to one party, either. If a Democrat is nominated on a free-silver ticket against a Republican gold-bug they would never get through count ing the votes. If tlie conditions were reversed, and a free-silver Republican pitted against a gold-hug Democrat, there wouldn't be a grease-pot left of the Democrat." The leaven is working and when it gets into the cabinet and is endorsed by a statesman of the well known in tegrity and ability of Wm. L. Wilson free silver men may well feel rejoiced and the gold-hugs tremble for the suc cess of their precious schemes. SILVER IN IOWA. Democratic Leaders Issue a fall for a Conference. A call for a Statu silver conference in lies Moines, on Juneli has been issued by about forty well-known Democrats, headed by ex-Lieut. Gov. Bestow. The call for the conference says: "It can no longer be doubted that a concerted effort is being made by a minority, hut a powerful minority, within both the Republican and Dem ocratic parties, to foist on the country the class doctrine of gold mono-metal lism, as distinguished from the genuine bi-metallism contemplated by the con stitution and advocated by the Demo cracy since the birth of the party. This movement is backed primarily by the money lenders of Europe, and sec ondarily, the class interests in this country that have grown lip under vicious legislation. " Their forces, comparatively few in number, but working in perfect harmony for a central purpose, have perfected their plans to control the temporary and permanent organiza tion of the state convertion to be held in Marshalltown August 7. If the plans of the single gold standard forces are not bravely met and defeated, the party iu lowa will certainly be en rolled under the banner of tte foreign financiers and the Wall street hankers. Let us face the issue like true Demo crats and acquit ourselves like men, giving our adversaries nocause for just complaint, hut let it be a fight to the finish. There is no time for shrinking —no time for silly compromises on vital issues; the welfare of the party for years to come is at slake." Ms Wife Knew the lltprn. There is no iloulit of it. It is a had thing for a man to have a wife with business ability. The case of W. 11. Allen, of llockford, 111., illustrates that fact. Mr. Allen's business is traveling for a wholesale grocery house. The other day he dislocated his shoulder. A trip which it was necessary that he should make was already mapped out. His wife told him that if he would mind the baby she would make the trip for him. He laughed her to scorn, but she was in earnest, and she took his sample case and went the rounds. The result was that, while he made a rather bad showing as nurse, she secured ten pages more of orders than he ever succeeded in doing in one day in all the years he had been on the road. The lirm has writ ten Mr. Allen suggesting that he trade jobs with his wife permanently. The Parmer's Object I.esson. Birniiugham (Ala.) Pally State. A good, honest farmer was standing in front of the court house, yesterday, looking mournfully at his tax receipt. He said : " I brought a bale of cotton here five years ago, sold it for $49.50. With this money I paid my taxes, $22; got a dress for my wife, $5; shoes for the children, $6; a barrel of Hour, $6.50; fifty pounds of sugar, $1; ten pounds of coffee, $2, and weut home happy with $3.75 in my pocket for the preacher. I brought in a bale to day, sold it for $22.50; paid my taxes, $22.25, and have a quarter left. They tell me I can get flour aud frocks and sugar and shoes for half I paid them, but it 'pears to me I haint got the half. I've about made up my mind to invest this quarter in United States bonds and howl for the gold stand ard." ELECTRICAL KKNO. —Electrician J. W. lloult has invented a new electrical kenoganie which will goon he in opera tion in a prominent sporting game, lly an ingenious device as each card is pegged a button is pressed and the number releases a cover in frame on the wall which shows the number of the card, thus preventing all mistakes. As the balls are called after the game begins the operator will again touch a button which will show the number of the ball in a large frame hanging on the wall. THE will of the late J. Agnew, of Centralis, was probated last week be fore Court Commissioner Willis. Members of the ' family are given money bequests ranging from S2OO to S7OO to the amount of $2,900; $4,100, the remainder of the life insurance, is to be devoted to paying debts of the estate. The real estate, worth proba bly $:10,000, is to be divided as the ex ecutors, Joe ltobinsou, Charles Gil christ and Jay Agnew deem best. THE fourth anuual session of the Seattle Association of Congregational churches was held in Snohomish Wednesday. STEWART'S SATIRE. HE ANALYZES CLEVELAND S LET TER TO GOV. STONE. He Asks Some I'ertlucnt and Some Impertinent tlucsllolis, wlrlrli Will Probably He Passed by in Silence Hy Hie Advocate of "Sound .Honey." Senator Stewart,of Nevada, lias sent a letter to the President, of whieh the following is an abstract: •' Your letter to Gov. Stone, of Mis sissippi, is admirable. It wholly ex onerates you from all suspicion of shirking from your plain, constitu tional duty of personal participation in the political controversies which agitate the people. " The originality of your discovery that the South favors silver mono metalism when it only contends for the coinage of silver upon terms and conditions applicable to the coinage of gold can never he ipiestioncd. You will undoubtedly explain in your next letter why the free coinage of gold and a refusal to coin silver is himctal istn, and the unrestricted coinage of both gold and silver in silver mono metalism. " Your wonder why the South does not appreciate the advantages of sell ing its exports for gold prices is in harmony with the profound thought and great wisdom of your Chicago let ter, wherein, referring to the farmer, you said: ' I.et us remind him that he must buy as well as sell; that his dreams of plenty are shadowed by the certainty that if the price of the things he has to sell is nominally enhanced, the cost of things he must buy will not remain stationary.' " From your unselfish point of view there is no answer to this argument. The discovery you have made that the sales and purchases of the farmers and planters in a cheap gold market exactly balance each other, and that what is lost by the low price of sales is gained by the low price of pur chases, solves the question and shows your full comprehension of all the principles of economic science. The fact that less than 300,000 pounds of cotton or 33,000 bushels of wheat would pay the $50,000 annual salary President Grant received, while it now requires 1,000,000 pounds of cotton or 83,000 bushels of wheat to pay your salary, which is the same number of dollars as that of your predecessor, shows the superiority of the "sound money" you have established and maintained. " Your ' wonder' at the imbecility of the farmers and planters in failing to appreciate the benefits of a cheap market for what they sell is most reasonable and natural from your un selfish, comprehensive view of the sub ject. You take into consideration that a cheap market where they sell creates a cheap market for what they buy, and you realize, if they do not, the advantages they have in selling more than they buy, and thereby re lieving themselves of more cheap pro ducts than they are compelled to buy. " They are at liberty to sell enough more than they buy to obtain money to pay interest and taxes, which to them may seem a hardship, but which, on account of your superior wisdom and patriotism, you Know to be a blessing which their dull comprehen sion fails to appreciate. " The luxury of buying in a cheap gold market with mouey remaining after discharging these nominal obli gations is not sufficiently prized by the discontented planters and farmers. The slight discrepancy between the amount lost in sales by low prices and gains by purchases in a cheap market ought never to be considered and is properly excluded from the wise and benevolent councils of Wall and Lom bard streets, and also from the learned deliberations of the White House, where your annual salary of $.">0,000 is promptly paid. " Your declaration that the gold standard established by the Republi- J can party in 1873 is the traditional doctrine of sound money of the Dem ocratic party, ought to inspire every Democratic heart with unbounded euthusiasm. You are right. There is not room enough on a gold-standard platform to accommodate the two old parties in an active campaign before the people, although the leaders of both have jointly occupied that plat form for the purpose of legislation and administration for more than 20 years. " You have achieved the proud dis tinction of being the first great Amer ican statesman who prorlaimcd to his fellow country the glory and benefits of the single gold standard. You have the right to eject the Itepublican party from the platform of sound money, which you have rescued from the ignoble obcuritv "f clandestine use by timid and unwoi.hv Republi can leaders, who secretly in nop. di/.ed the benefactions of the gold combina tion until you appeared as the Moses of scattered Democracy. "The hereditary rights of the tie scendants of Shylock are safe in your bauds. Your decree of low price anil less wages for those who produce, ami more gain and less sacrifice for those who absorb, will be executed by the jsiwer you command, while the trim mers and dodgers of the Republican fold are confounded and paralyzed by your boldness and dash."
